I agree with the reviewer who pointed out the stereotypes used to describe the Hawaiians. Happy, dancing, friendly, open faces...It was silly and lazy on the author's part. And how many ancient Hawaiians were named Boka? The letter B was not used for Hawaiian words.
This volume, though, has me wondering if at times the series isn't as well-researched as it ought to be... Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there something wrong when you have Jack and Annie traveling back in time to ancient Hawaii and meeting a boy named Boka... when the letter "B" doesn't exist in the Hawaiian language? Seems like Mary Pope Osborne, her ghost writers, or her editors, could have caught a goof like this before the book went to press. Oh, well. A minor point, perhaps, but it does reveal a rather cavalier attitude towards the global cultures that the books supposedly are helping introduce to young readers. (Axton)
In my favorite part, they were at the beach surfing and Jack was reading a little bit about where they were. He felt a movement and searched up what that was in the book. The wave got bigger and bigger until it was huge, and they had to run away from it. They ran to the top of a giant hill to be safe.
These books are great for 3rd graders reading independently.

I liked this book because there was action. One thing the author did well was include intersting pictures. My favorite part was when there was a tsunami. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Mrs. Green's Class
